Here's and example of the issue. I've attached screenshots as well. She used to make potions of plentiful needs and when I dragged them from her inventory the potion would remain a potion in it's potion glass as you can see in one of the screenshots there are still some potions on the shelves from before when this glitch began. Now when she makes the potion of plentiful needs it appears as it's normal icon in her inventory but as soon as I place it it instantly turns into a red cup, same issue when she tries to drink it, it becomes a red cup.

The same thing happens even when I learn a new potion recipe and get a sample of it in my inventory it looks normal. But when I try to brew it myself it still looks as a potion vial when in inventory and after I place it in the world anywhere, just like said, it turns into some red cup and it stays as a cup even when you try to drink it.

@3mmagreen It must be a mod conflicting. Mine looks fine. Same potion.

@Psychotps I’ve tested without mods or CC same issue. The potions were working normal for ages until after my spell-caster made a batch which began the red cup issue, batches after had the same cup problem.The save may be bugged though. I’ll do some testing on other saves but I wish I could figure out the cause and avoid it.

@3mmagreenThat's kindof the problem. Sims 4 is a very impressive game. So many systems working independently and together, one little bug can effect a lot of things in other places you wouldn't expect.

For example: If you place a ceiling light above a dining room table, it breaks the dishwasher. Don't ask me why or how one has to do with the other...

There are a lot of things it could be... just have to keep it in the back of your head until you can figure it out... or keep searching here and see if someone else has.

 

Since it works for me but not you, you must have done something different that caused the bug.

@Psychotps So you were right, I have figured out how to get it working! It was either a bb.moveobjects caused glitch and the lamps near the cauldron broke the cauldron, or it was just the cauldron becoming glitched, but replacing the cauldron and making a new batch after I removed the lamps cause the potions to be made in their proper bottles again!! If anyone else had the same issue I'd love to know if replacing the cauldron works for you.

@3mmagreen Do you still have a save from before you replaced the cauldron ?

@crinrict Yes I saved over it but recovered a version of the save from last night, I tried uploading it here for you but the extension type wasn't supported. Again with this save, the potions in her inventory and any more she makes with that cauldron are put into red cups. Where should I upload it if you want to have a look?
